|- Chapter 3: The Festival of Fire -|
wow this is a weird feature... sometimes when you try to do some bonding at the barracks with a girl, some thorns will appear, showing that she is hiding something from Alto... a new character named Medea shows up and brings Alto and the girls to a place called the Tuning Hall. It's a new free time option, allowing Alto to do more "tuning" sessions with the witch characters to remove their thorns and get them to share more of their secrets with him... oh and Medea has the girls change into these lewd silk dresses while they're in here because reasons..
next, we go to east to a mountain village called Amatsu, where the Fire Witch is... this place has a big Japanese style festival and temples and stuff going on... everyone here warships the Fire Witch like a goddess... met a strange woman in a skimpy outfit on a box on her head... she sounds like exactly the same VA as Popo which is really confusing... lmao, why are all the female VAs in this game so bad?
She introduces herself as Nonoko, the fire witch's servant... Alto is like "what's with the box on your head? shouldn't you be covering... uh... something else?"
As soon as we met the Fire Witch, Sakuya, some bunny dolls came and attacked.. these are from one of Hilda's teammates.. Nonoko helps us in battle to.. she's a quick moving ninja character, sort of like Rusty.. except she always stays near Sakuya to protect her.
Sakuya says that she'll join our team, but first she has to complete the song for the fire festival so that she can prevent the volcano's eruption for another year.
more free time... I'm kinda liking these bonding scenes, the humor in these scenes is really good. Archibald is becoming my favorite character. this one scene where he has to go on a date with some random woman... he doesn't know what to say and he's like "y-you too..."
this next part is cool... Alto, Lisette, Popo, and Rusty all go to the festival and try to meet Sakuya, and they eavesdrop on her talking to her servant... they find out that her real personality is very different from the divine priestess act she put on earlier.. she's a totally lazy, snobby bitch and hates having to act like a priestess all the time... everyone except Alto manages to avoid getting caught eavesdropping... Alto gets forced to become Sakuya's servant and has to keep her secret if he wants her to join the knights...
